Luncheons

"Carol Burnett" Luncheon by Barry Bradford


No comedienne in history has probably been more beloved than Carol Burnett. Her television series was not only one of the most popular in history; it is one of the most influential and revered comedy programs of all time. Her talents leap off the screen – but they are not limited to television. She is an author, a Broadway star, made several delightful movies, and is a humanitarian whose charity has influenced many. You will be amazed at her life story – how much she had to overcome to reach stardom and how much she has given back. The film clips, biographical anecdotes and insights into her personality will create an unforgettable portrait of a great performer. Lunch will include a grilled chicken breast, baked potato, salad and dessert.
Friday, Jul 7 • 11:00am-1:00pm • $9M/$13.50NM

Bobby Darin: Beyond the Sea with John Boda


Mackie’s Back in Town: Bobby Darin – This is another one in the series of great vocalists and performers of last century, and Bobby Darin was one of the top ones! He packed a lot of living and work in film and records in his short life living only to the age of 37. He knew at a young age that his life would be short due to a bad heart condition and consequently planned a career to shoot to the stars as quick as possible. Bobby was one of the few who could easily cover different styles of songs and move back and forth between rock, pop, standards without being labeled to anyone of them. This presentation will look at his life and music filled with pictures, trivia and songs such as “Splish Splash”, “Beyond the Sea” “Mack the Knife” and more. Also included will be a look into his sweetheart romance and marriage to star Sandra Dee. Lunch includes an Italian Beef sandwich, mostaciolli, salad and dessert.
Monday, Aug 14 • 11:00am-1:00pm • $9M/$13.50NM
